Abstract
Torrential flows, like debris flows and debris floods, can mobilize large volumes at high velocities in mountainous regions. Therefore, they represent an important erosional process and a significant hazard towards infrastructures and people (sometimes catastrophic). Monitoring-based analysis is a crucial task to improve the understanding of the mechanisms triggering torrential flows and its propagation, which are necessary to implement early warning systems. The monitoring of triggering conditi...
